The Forest Preserves of Cook County will again sponsor the annual Ralph Frese Memorial Trip on his Honorary Water Trail - the North Branch of the Chicago River, starting below the Willow Road Dam and proceeding to Linne Woods takeout at Dempster Street. FPCC will provide car shuttles - please register (free) at http://fpdcc.com/event/ralph-frese-memorial-paddle/
or call FPCC at 708-386-4042 so we know how many paddlers to expect (and make cookies for).
If the North Branch is in flood stage, we will move the paddle to the Skokie Lagoons.
